FULL OF HELL Complete Work On New Album “Trumpeting Ecstasy”
Maryland/Pennsylvania experimental death-noise band FULL OF HELL have completed work on their devastating new album “Trumpeting Ecstasy” which will be released May 05 on CD/LP/Digital/CS. New music and pre-orders will drop sometime in the upcoming weeks.
FULL OF HELL have embarked on quite the journey leading up to the impending release of “Trumpeting Ecstasy”, an album which will see the band deliver their most punishing, virulent, and dynamic album to date.
With “Trumpeting Ecstasy”, FULL OF HELL build upon their progression since “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” and the releases succeeding it. This time the band decided to go into Godcity Studios with Kurt Ballou at the production helm to help achieve the intended vision of “Trumpeting Ecstasy”. The result being the best and strongest sounding FULL OF HELL album, their most towering release to date. Sky tearing and sonically cataclysmic, the aural deluge that is “Trumpeting Ecstasy” also features guest appearances by Aaron Turner (Sumac/Old Man Gloom/Mamiffer/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge/Old Man Gloom), Andrew Nolan (Column Of Heaven/The Endless Blockade), and Canadian singer/songwriter Nicole Dollanganger. Expect FULL OF HELL to tour relentlessly in support of “Trumpeting Ecstasy” as well.

The embryonic beginnings of Full of Hell displayed their palette at its most primitive, d-beat and blast ridden hardcore punk with spats of noise and caustic rhythm, and within a few short years, they have bloomed into a true force to be reckoned with within the punk, hardcore and metal communities. Since the release of their Profound Lore Records debut album “Full Of Hell & Merzbow” late 2014, their third full-length album, the band began to truly come into their own, combining elements of grindcore, death/black metal, punk and hardcore with a smattering of sonically laden power electronics and industrial pounding. It would also signal the band being at their most active and prolific ever since their inception in 2009.
The band would tour endlessly non-stop in different parts of the world in places as far off as Japan, Australia (twice), Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Philippines, South Korea etc.), along with several tour runs in Europe and many tour jaunts within the US, along with playing countless festivals and exclusive shows. The band would also add to their repertoire and discography as well during said timeframe releasing a direct collaboration album with The Body and several EPs, one of them being their most-recent split 7”EP with Nails (which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 100 Singles Chart).
